Crabtree & Evelyn Hand Cream

Crabtree & Evelyn are a brand which silently but proudly portray luxurious British heritage. The brand stemmed from a family run business that made home-made soaps with an international themes which has since grown into a huge international company which is known for quality toiletries and they have stemmed into fragrances and even food. Crabtree & Evelyn are the ultimate hipster company as they made “natural” cool before “natural” was the in thing to do. Working in harmony with nature their products are inspired from a time when the garden played an important role in daily life and they use plant, fruit and flower essences for natural fragances and soothing solutions for the skin.

Crabtree Evelyn Ultra Moisturising Hand Therapy

From two of the recent #BWB or Bloggers Who Bless Cape Town meets – we have been totally spoilt with their wonderful handcreams. The one I’ve been using on my paws is the Iris Hand Therapy. Firstly, it is small enough to carry around in your handbag, they certainly pack a punch in these harsh winter months. They touch your skin and are absorbed leaving you with wonderfully smooth and soft hands that have no left over residue or greasiness. A real winter-must have. On top of this they leave your hands smelling absolutely gorgeous and long after use they leave a very faint scent of beautiful iris. These hand creams are award-winning and its not hard to see why. They certainly win my vote for best winter handcream for 2014 that I’ve used so far 😉 Have a look at the entire handcream range over here at their website.

For 50g this product retails at R180 but you use such a little product it can last you for ages so, its well worth the investment!

Crabtree & Evelyn are not only an easy solution for a gift for the special ladies in your life as their products will happily work in harmony with everyone, they are a healthy and smart choice for daily use.

Movember ~ Changing the face of men’s health

Well hello pretty pouters

It’s November, or is that Movember? So, since cancer is an issue close to everyones heart, I’d though it’d be a good idea to address the month now know as Movember.

So what is Movember about?

During November each year, Movember is responsible for the sprouting of thousands of moustaches on men’s faces around the world. The aim of which is to raise vital funds and awareness for men’s health, in South Africa, funds are mainly raised for the two main cancers that affect men, specifically prostate and testicular cancer. The funds raised are directed to programs run directly by Movember and our men’s health partner, the Cancer Association of South Africa (CANSA).

On 1 November, guys taking part in this initiative, register on http://www.movember.com with a photo of themselves with a clean-shaven face. Then, for the rest of November, you, known as Mo Bro’s,  grow and groom and wax (ouchie) your wonderful Mo into perfection, supported by your lovely Mo Sista, and raise funds by seeking out sponsorship for your Mo-growing efforts.

Since it’s inception in Melboune Australia, the programme has raised over R1.2billion so far. Mo Bro’s effectively become walking, talking billboards for the 30 days of November and through their actions and words raise awareness by prompting private and public conversation around the often ignored issue of men’s health.

At the end of the month, Mo Bros and Mo Sistas celebrate their gallantry and valor by either throwing their own Movember party or attending one of the infamous Gala Partés held around the world by Movember, for Movember.

So come on gents, it doesn’t matter what shape you grow, get your Mo growing and support the good cause.

Have a pouty perfect day!
